end of the semester.

2 weeks of the semester left. This is the part where you wish you would have gotten ahead in your classes when you were all gung ho at the beginning of the semester. oh oops maybe thats just me, and that may be why my blog is lacking posts... either you will see a bunch of posts (procrastination) or know i am getting something done.


15 months

i L O V E my cutie little hazey pop. sometimes shes CRAZY sometimes shes CRANKY sometimes she is just in her own little world, but all the time we have FUN

*she does great at the gym daycare for about an hour, then it gets to be too much (we are working on nursery length!!)

*she would rather play with other kids any day, is miss social.

*Sleeps great, bed between 7-730 and wakes up between 7-8
(the other night i was woken up by her talking and giggling in her crib at 330am.. so she wakes up some, but has fun in there)

*loves milk. a mixture of vit D, vanilla almond milk, and vanilla soy milk

*still in size 3 diapers

*got a new carseat from our insurance because of the crash we let her pick between our top two choices and she loved the pretty colored one, instead of the black and gray.

*still rear-facing and we plan until 2 years per new recommendations

*i think she is teething, but still has 8 teeth

*wearing more and more 18 month clothes but still fits in plenty of 12 months, all of our christmas PJs are still being worn :)

*somedays she takes 2 naps, somedays just 1 (depends on how early she wakes up)

*LOVE mickey, minnie, and jake (LOVED disneyland!!)

*her vocabulary is getting big with one words: mom, dad, jake, mickey, minnie, duck, dog, uh-oh, frog, tree, ya, no, nose, ear, yummy, look, oooohhh, wee, woah, hi, bye, cheese, cookie,

*'talks' on the phone, 'throws' the ball,

*yells, throws fits, goes up and down the stairs like a champ
*loves baths but wants out the second she dumps the cup of water in her own face.
*hides in the closet
*climbs up everything and anything
*still clingy to mom
*gives kisses
*the best cuddler
*favorite foods: mac and cheese, spaghetti, yogurt, cookies.
*likes to show you where her nose is, usually with a finger up each nostril.

is the light of our lives.


a new ride.

we did it. we splurged, we bought a new to us car. i love it, but we will have payments. boo. First time in our marriage we have car payments, but we are working out details to have it paid off in (cross fingers) a year. ill let you know how that one goes ;) i feel spoiled, i would be in my car all day and i am constantly looking out my front window at it. Here is what she looks like (via goggle) because it is the weee hours of the morning and i have yet to take a real picture..and she also needs a name. Maybe i will wait until hazel is old enough to name it. My nieces named their family cars, lightning mcqueen and bucky and i think those are way cooler than real people names for cars. do you name your cars? what are their names???



is what we hash tagged all the instagram pics we put up.. i think it totaled over 60!

*wednesday night the wagner clan arrived. the chaos began.
*the entire family was there by thursday night.
just a few of the group on Thursday morning. Uncle Bob got asked if he was Santa by some kid :)

*that's my new stroller i got at Target on clearance for $50! score. it is awesome and perfect for disneyland!
*Hazel was NOT scared of characters. she couldn't wait to go look up close and touch them. she would cry everytime we had to take her away!

Family Carousel ride. 

The aftermath of Winnie the Pooh. I felt so bad for the workers, but they would NOT let us help clean up, it was cleaned up spotless and very quickly too.

Hazel was literally in HEAVEN when we found Jake! Jake was one of her very first words!!!
SHE is obsessed with him.. ha!
The plane ride home. EXHAUSTED. best plane ride :)

Okay now i need to work on binking weening. This little munchkin has it in every pic! any suggestions?! oh and she will pick her froggy or doggy binky over any other binky!!! silly girl!!

all the family
(hazel is asleep in jason's arms. haha)
our table
so the real reason we went to southern Ca for spring break was because it was my Grandpa's 90th birthday bash! we were just so fortunate that it happened to be spring break the week of so we spent the whole time at Disneyland sat-fri and then fri night, saturday and sun morning were spent in Beaumont where my Grandpa and Grandma live (my mom's parents) Let me tell you about my grandpa.. he does not seem like he is a 90 year old. He is a young whippersnapper. he's hilarious, greets you with a kiss, makes the best jokes, loves his family, tells the best stories.. oh and did i mention he has a really great sense of humor?! :) I love you Grandpa!! The big party was a BLAST! the most delicious food, beautiful venue, rockin' dance floor and live musician and the best company. Hazel killed the dance floor along with the other kiddos!


Spring break extravaganza

Spring break went by too quickly! Luckily we made the most of it in Southern California and made it back to Omaha just in time for a blustery blizzard (predicted 1-3 inches, actual about 5-7 inches of snow)

Incase you don't follow my Instagram here are the pictures from our first part of Disneyland. We had a blast staying at the Disneyland hotel with Grammy and popsie Pickett. Hazel loved that she could just walk back and forth between rooms and go find them. Hazel threw up for her first time on early sunday morning- And I threw up all day Monday... And then Grammy got super sick Tuesday. But other than that it was the best!
*Not as Hot as I was hoping for but 60's were good :)
*Hazel absolutely LOVED every character and cried when we had to leave
*Many new words were added to her vocab including Minnie and Mickey
